Subject: RFP: davinciresolve -- Davinci Resolve software
Date: Sun, 26 May 2013 02:50:08 -0400
Package: wnpp
Version: N/A
Severity: wishlist

* Package name: davinciresolve
Version: 9
Upstream Author: blackmagic
* URL :
* License : (LGPL, closed)

The installer is meant to be used on CentOS (bash scripts).. but I know 
it's free and "blackmagic" hardware is NOT needed in order to use it.. 
(Works on a Winbloze system)

It makes a great workflow with LWKS.. and this other piece of software 
might go opensource, but the point is these things are movie-grade tools 
which can really boost Linux's arsenal of power software (video editing/ 
color correction)..

Davinciresolve is used with 30,000 dollar hardware.. so it's hard to 
dismiss this as a simple kid's kit (even though it's not opensource, but 
it does use opensource for some of its parts.. I see ffmpeg related 
libraries bundled with it).. The software is highly professional and has 
been out for at least a number of months as a free edition for Linux but 
not much people outside blackmagic/NAB sites seem to know about this 
available usability

The other thing is this software "requires" using CUDA from an NVIDIA 
card.. so it's a bummer for those who have AMD cards..

I've tried to look into it's scripts, but I'm having great difficulty, 
so I'm thinking perhaps someone is much better than me in trying to have 
this thing working on non-CentOS :) (It's cooler to have it on debian :)

Someone should get this baby packaged even though it'll probably end up 
in non-free or contrib.. It really is a powerful piece of software hard 
to dismiss..
